    So the Mclaren App has still has pictures of Alonso in Honda overalls. Hope the team are better organised than their marketing dept.

    I see they’ve fitted it with what looks like either a rail so the driver can do handstands on the victory lap or a place to mount a machine gun.

    Very useful if there’s a “sicko” with an assault rifle in the crowd.

    I love the look of that McLaren.

    It does look good in that colour scheme & it ties in well with their road going cars of that hue. Hope it's fast enough to get Alonso fighting up near the front again.

    Don't know about that, but good to see the return of the McLaren orange, first worn by the all-conquering Can-Am cars in the 1970s:

    What do we want?

    Race car noises!

    This was my favourite engine note, the fabulously complex McLaren Mercedes V10 from 2000 and 2001. From 25 sec just extraordinary.

    Pretty sad indictment on modern F1 when we'd all rather watch/listen to the old stuff

    Always makes me laugh how whenever there’s some production promoting F1, they always use the old engine noises. They'll still be doing it when it’s gone all electric!

    Well let's face it, at the moment the cars sound like a fat bloke farting inside a large cardboard box. Hardly the pinnacle of engineering and excitement.

    I don't really mind them per se they are a very technical sound and quite interesting but they do not elicit an emotional response that the shrieking V10's at 20k rpm do.

    And in another thread people are saying how nice it is that gig sound levels have gone down
